2014 National Matches get into groove as Pistol Championships go onward
Port Clinton, Ohio - Hundreds pistol shooters from all over the United States have gathered at Camp Perry, Ohio, this weekend for the 2014 NRA National Pistol Championships, which continue pressing on today with the Center Fire Championship.
The Center Fire Championship is just what it sounds like. Shooters use centerfire ammunition, which is struck by the firing pin at the center of the round's base. This is opposed to rimfire, which is - you guessed it - stuck on the rim of the base. Centerfire options are usually reserved for higher caliber rounds, so the ranges will be a little noisier today. But that's what everyone's there for, right?
While we wait for scores to trickle in, here are some shots from the firing line taken earlier today.
